Each time we visit our new home, we excitedly see that another item can be scratched off the list of things to complete. In Florida, the building code takes into account that we live in a possible hurricane area; therefore, houses might be built differently from houses built in other areas.
This week, we see that the tie beam was poured, and the hurricane clips are in place. See them sticking up above the blocks?
Concrete has been poured down through all of the blocks to make solid walls. Then these hurricane clips are put in place. They will later be nailed to the roof trusses.
Holes must be left open so that the inspector can be certain that steel bars go all the way down to the foundation. making the walls more secure. Later, these pieces of wood will come off.
Monday we discovered this treat for our eyes: petitions and sheeting had been delivered. Here comes the roof! Here comes the roof!
